INTENSE PULSED LIGHT

Intense Pulsed Light


One of the main advantages of IPL technology?
 
Substantially minimizes post-procedure downtime.

Intense Pulsed Technology (IPL)


Intense Pulsed Technology is a highly versatile, safe, effective non-invasive modality for the treatment of vascular and pigmented lesions, hypertrichosis, and epidermal and dermal atrophy associated with photoaging, as well as acne, rosacea, actinic keratoses, and nonmelanoma skin cancers. 


Contraindications include: 
pregnancy, light induced seizures, St. Johns Wort, accutane, active herpes within the treatment areas, active infection, darker Fitzpatrick skin types, sunburn.
A consultation will determine if you might be a good candidate for IPL technology.


How does it work, how is 
IPL different from laser technology?

Light energy is absorbed into particular target cells with color (chromophores) in the skin, same principle as a laser. Light energy converts to heat energy causing damage to a specific target area.

Different from a laser, delivering many wavelengths (or colors) in each pulse of light instead of just one wavelength.
